Madison, WI — The International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA) has released their latest COVID-19 Industry Impact report.
This week’s report found that total store sales, including the fresh perimeter, saw its lowest gain since March 29, at +14.3%. Natural cheese had the highest increase in absolute dollars, with year-over-year sales up $74 million. Deli cheese continued to have double-digit increases versus the same week in 2019, whereas deli meat increases have mostly been trending in the single digits. Deli-prepared food sales were down 31.6% — much in line with the patterns seen since late April. Sales for the in-store bakery (non-UPC, random-weight items, no UPC items) were off by more than 17% versus the same week last year. The only two items tracking in positive territory are bread and croissants.
